A new posthumous album containing mostly unreleased songs by Prince has been released.

The album, named Originals is a demo album that features the original versions of songs Prince wrote and gave to other artists.

All but Prince's recording of 'Nothing Compares 2 U' - made famous by Sinead O'Connor - were previously unreleased.

The songs were written and recorded from the early 1980s to the early 1990s. Troy Carter, a music manager and adviser to Prince's estate, chose the tracks, alongside input from Jay-Z, who "pushed" for Prince's demo for Martika's 1991 single 'Love... Thy Will Be Done' to be included.

The album includes his version of 'Manic Monday', which he later gave to The Bangles.
